10 Vegan Holiday Breakfast Recipes

I feel like breakfast gets the short end of the stick on holidays. Everyone’s always ready for a hearty dinner complete with satisfying sides and entrees and, of course, lots of desserts. Don’t get me wrong, I live for savory holiday dinners.

But lettuce not forget that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, the very thing that finally gets us out of bed after we’ve hit the snooze button four times (or is that just me?). I literally go to sleep excited to wake up to eat breakfast, and that definitely doesn’t change over the holidays. This is the time of decadent breakfasts and meals shared with our loved ones.

So I’ve rounded up 10 seriously delicious vegan holiday breakfast recipes that will get you just as excited about your first meal of the day as you are for your big holiday dinner. You should definitely add one (or two, or ten) to your breakfast meal plan this holiday season. Enjoy!
